I just posted my second yoga flow on YouTube. It is longer than the first with a lot of twists, balancing poses and several opportunities for chaturangas. I am still very new at teaching and demonstrating yoga flows and still have a lot to learn, but I decided to put it out there.
I have recently been incorporating turmeric into my diet. I had been hearing a lot about it and decided I wanted to give it a try. I buy turmeric in it’s powdered form in the bulk section. I have not tried the turmeric root yet even though I have seen it in the produce section. I put it in curries and stir-fries and now I use it to make golden milk.
I first heard about golden milk after hearing a talk given by the owner of Curcuma, an Austin food truck. Curcuma sells golden milk out of their food truck. Instead of buying it for $5.50, I decided to make it myself.
Golden milk is a healthy drink that uses turmeric in combination with black pepper, cinnamon and ginger. It is very delicious and is very easy to make!
1.5 cup non-dairy milk
1 tsp. turmeric powder
pinch of black pepper
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
2 tsp. maple syrup
Add everything except the milk into a blender.
Heat your milk on the stove or in the microwave.
Add the milk to the blender and blend until smooth and foamy.
Pour into a mug and enjoy!
*I like mine sweet. Use less maple syrup if you want it less sweet. You can also use agave, stevia or dates for the sweetener.
